At Iacobelli Law Firm, we are proud to announce that our dedicated team of personal injury lawyers is gearing up for a trial in Newmarket, Ontario. On November 20, 2023, we will step into the courtroom with our colleague, Adriano Pranzitelli, to fight for justice on behalf of a passenger who was injured in a motor vehicle accident. This trial is not just about securing compensation; it's about standing up against the injustices that some insurance companies perpetrate.
This particular case has reached trial because the insurance company for the at-fault driver has stubbornly refused to provide any compensation to the injured victim. The Plaintiff, a mother of 2, was a passenger in a car operated by her husband, when they were suddenly t-boned on the passenger side by a careless driver. The insurance company for the at-fault driver has admitted that their driver was at fault for causing the crash, and has also acknowledged that the plaintiff had injuries from that crash. Nonetheless, they have taken a hardline stance. The truth is, if the victim loses her trial, the insurance company will ask the judge to order her to pay them for their legal expenses- this could be as much as $100,000. It is a terrifying scenario for most anyone injured in an accident, and the insurance companies know it. Insurance companies are billion dollar companies and they can afford to hire lawyers to delay and deny claims for years. Unfortunately, they sometimes use this power imbalance to strong arm victims into accepting unreasonable settlements or walking away completely.
The insurance company here is a British multinational insurance company headquartered in London, England - it has a large share of the Ontario auto insurance market. It is no stranger to these tactics, and this case is yet another example of their aggressive approach. The plaintiff's fight for justice has become a battle against not only the insurance company but also a system that sometimes enables such behavior.
The Importance of This Trial:
This trial represents more than just another legal proceeding. It is a fight for justice, accountability, and the rights of accident victims. It is an opportunity to challenge the tactics employed by insurance companies that can leave individuals who have already suffered from accidents in even greater distress.
In a jury trial, the plaintiff and the defendant are afforded the opportunity to present their case to an impartial group of individuals who will determine the outcome based on the evidence presented. While insurance will play a critical role in the case, the jury will not be made aware of its involvement. This ensures that the verdict will be reached solely on the merits of the case, unclouded by preconceived notions about insurance companies or their practices.
At Iacobelli Law Firm, we are committed to advocating for our clients, even when faced with roadblocks imposed by big insurance companies. We believe in holding those responsible for injuries accountable and ensuring that victims receive the compensation they deserve. This trial is a testament to our unwavering commitment to fighting for justice.
